Do we have enough with no Chris Bosh and the inconsistent play of Hassan Whiteside to win enough of the remaining games to make the playoffs? Under the circumstances, is it too optimistic for Heat fans to expect more as in winning games on the home court and against the non-elite teams from the group that takes the court? I don't think that Dwayne Wade can do any more than he does with his minutes on the court especially with his exceptional play in the fourth quarter Monday.

Q: Ira, I've been on the 'Miami will be fine' bandwagon, but after that Cleveland loss, I'm on the 'time to be concerned' bandwagon. The Heat simply aren't defending anymore. Something's wrong and needs to be addressed quickly. Or first-round exit here we come -- Marc, Arlington, Texas. Add to Chrome.

A: While I can appreciate the desire for fans to have their teams active in the offseason, especially when there are no games to talk about, I think this also is a time for both team and fan to sit back and exhale. An argument could be made that the Heat already have done a full offseason's worth of work by augmenting the roster with Winslow and Richardson in the draft, and then Stoudemire and Green at the bargain bin of free agency. Not bad for a team with few tradable assets and no cap space. Could there be more? But there's also time. So, for now, sit back and savor the likely return to relevance.
